Your 90-Minute Health Check

Angi Mann & Andrew Gunn

Get all the vitamins your business needs for a clean bill of Compliance health. Join us for this ‘answer-all’ session designed for all types of advisers.

You won’t have attended a Compliance session quite like this…ever! Come ready for a quick-fire answer-all 90-minute Compliance health-check – designed to answer all of your commonly asked questions, and with specialist ‘locum’ appearances on a wide range of topics such as legislative obligations, advice processes; CPD pathways; disputes resolution and more.

We’ll be ousting confusion with our fast paced Q&A on the common compliance questions. We’ll demystify the practical application of financial and general legislation, and highlight the common areas of Compliance failure to watch out for. We’ll outline how to use Compliance as a tool to support informed choice and to add value to your advice process. And of course, we’ll clarify changes in CPD requirements and the qualification pathways available for different types of advisers.

Have questions? We’ve got the answers. Don’t miss this opportunity to give your Compliance knowledge and processes a comprehensive health check.
